2001 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


These must be the best built cars for
around 45K. This car surly is not slow.
Test drove Acura 3.2TL type S and the
Lexus GS300 and still the BMW feels
very well rounded when pushing the
pedel and reciving the amount of power
needed in all situations. Steering may
seem heavy at first, after getting used
to it makes you feel always so
confidant and in control. Quietness
seems to have been a big considertion
when this car was designed, Ultra super
smooth steering, ride, suspension,
controls, EVERYTHING. Rear seat room is
a bit smaller then other cars we test
drove but not so much that it is
uncomfortable. GREAT Job BMW.

Best Features

Auto Climate control always blowing cold air, DSP sound system, rear wheel drive handling feel, quiet interior, smooth ride, seat comfort, upgraded onboard computer system, one touch up and down windows, power front head rests, steering wheel controls

Worst Features

rear seats fold down should be feature standard, standard rear view dimming mirrors and rain sensor wippers, XENON should be standard head lights, a bit more rear seat room and easier access.
